ESET has announced the availability of the enhanced ESET Mobile Security in APAC.
The app has been updated to include proactive Anti-Theft features, which helps Android users track lost or stolen mobile devices through an easy-to-use web interface at http://my.eset.com. Basic protection is free for a lifetime. Users can decide if they want to subscribe and benefit from Premium features.
Proactive Anti-Theft detects potentially dangerous situations and takes preventive steps to ease the localization of stolen or lost device. The new functionality for Premium users sends the last location of the device when the battery hits critical level, takes snapshots from front and back camera when the wrong PIN/pattern is entered or an unauthorized SIM change is detected. All data on the device is accessible via the same web interface.
The free version of the app provides basic protection including full device scan, scan of downloaded applications items, and basic Anti-Theft functionalities. Premium features are unlocked after activating the 30-day trial or buying the license. Users can find Scheduled scanning, On-Charger scan, advanced Proactive Anti-Theft functionalities, including my.eset.com integration, SMS&Call filter, and Security Audit in the premium version.
